Boldizsár's programming blog

About

You've just made it to the About section of my blog and now you want to know some facts about me.

My name is Boldizsár Tömpe and I'm a JavaScript developer. I specialise in NodeJS and React. I'm also working with Docker, MySQL and Redis. In my free time I do calisthenics as I try to keep my body in shape after sitting in front of the computer for hours. I also like to cook when I have the time.

I started blogging for 2 reasons. First to write about interesting stuff I learn and this way I hope I can deepen my knowledge about the topics I write about. Secondly, I hope my articles will be found helpful and beneficial to some of you.

A small bio of myself

I graduated as a Computer Software Engineer from Budapest University of Technology and Economics with a highest honour degree in February 2018. During my studies I did two summer internships, one with Morgan Stanley in Budapest, the other with American Express in Burgess Hill, UK. Back then I was mainly focused on mobile technologies and for my final project I built an Android and iOS app (native) using Firebase for backend and DB. During the last semester I was offered a job as an iOS dev because I did great on my exams. After graduation I started working as well as my master’s studies. As months passed, I realised that I didn't want to get stuck in the mobile dev environment and in one of my subjects I was getting to know Docker and Kubernetes which I really liked. So, I asked my teacher (who was the boss of the company) if I could change positions and do something on the backend side. This is how I started working with backend and devops technologies professionally. In July my contract with this company ended and I moved to London. I am now working for a start-up as a fullstack developer.
